The Chocorua Lake Conservancy is a collection of lands preserving the iconic view of Lake Chocorua with Mount Chocorua in the background. The view is spectacular at any time but especially so during fall foliage season.
In the late 19th century C.P. Bowditch owned about 90% of the land surrounding Lake Chocorua. In his will he expressed his intent “to insure the future, as I have attempted to insure in the past, the keeping of the shores of the Chocorua Ponds in as a natural and wild state as possible.” Because of his bequest and subsequent stewardship we have a wonderful scenic list to enjoy.
A three acre parcel know as the grove near the Narrows Bridge is one of the main public access points; ideal for swimming, canoe and kayak put in access and photography.
There is also a 17 acre site known as “The Island” on the old NH Route 16.
There is also a “Tamworth Resident Only” access area off NH Route 16. During off peak season you may be able to make a quick stop for photos.
